Explore creativity and place in Berkshire
Guest Speaker, Richard Wentworth
Wednesday 19 November 2008, Reading Town Hall, 6 – 9 pm
CALL FOR NOMINATIONS FOR BERKSHIRE SPEAKERS
What are we made of? is a new cultural event profiling the importance of creative practice in and for Berkshire. The 2008 event considers the relationship between creativity and place and is organised by arts consultant Louise O’Reilly(www.lorva.co.uk) on behalf of the Berkshire Local Authority Arts Partnership with guest speaker Richard Wentworth (www.lissongallery.com) We are seeking nominations for Berkshire voices to join Richard and make short presentations about what they (and Berkshire) are made of.
Richard says, “as part of our ambition to unearth all sorts of unseen activities across the county of Berkshire we thought it would be a good if it had some element of the chain letter where people could ‘put us on to someone else’. We would like people to nominate other people whose artistic and creative activity they find interesting. The area can be as broad as you like, across all media, self-taught, educated, but most importantly it should be energetic and vivacious. It can be intensely collaborative, extremely private, pursued out of simple curiosity, or commercial imperative. Like all digging the most important thing is not to worry what you might unearth bur rather enjoy the sheer variety of things that can be discovered.” Richard Wentworth
Please see the attached flyer & nomination form for further details or contact Louise at firstname.lastname@example.org or www.lorva.co.uk. . The deadline for nominations is 5.00 pm on Monday 8 September.
